For nearly 200 years, Austin Powder has been in the business of helping customers break rock safely and efficiently. Our long history of serving the quarrying industry reflects the continuous development of new, safer, and more reliable blasting products, and innovative technologies. Today, Austin serves quarrying operations around the world.
Without blasting, the aggregates industry would be incapable of meeting the crushed stone demand for building and maintaining the world’s infrastructure – roads, highways, and bridges. In addition, quarried rock products are used in pharmaceuticals, numerous household products, cosmetics, construction materials, and a variety of necessities used by all of us every day.
Our commitment to the industry begins with our commitment to safety. We employ certified blasters, state-of-the-art delivery systems, and the safest and highest quality products. We also place great importance on environmental concerns, minimizing or eliminating any environmental impacts.
Each quarry is different, each bench in the quarry is different, and every day, the conditions in the quarry are different. Getting the right-sized rock, minimizing oversize and fines, is the goal no matter the changing conditions. Austin knows that the most cost-effective place to break rock is at the face.
So, here at Austin, we begin with helping our customers choose the right product for the specific application. Products such as Austin Powder’s E-Star Detonators, are critical – not only to achieve maximum environmental control but also for the best fragmentation results possible. And, used with Austin’s 440/4100 Series gassed emulsions, this level of control results in significant cost savings.
The Austin Powder Southeast business comprises 11 locations and many types of materials from limestone to granite to marine limestone. They also service and deliver to the construction industry.
John LeGore, President of Luck Stone Corp. believes that the reason there has been so much success between Austin Powder Company and Luck Stone Corp is that there is a high level of trust. It’s not just a relationship with a vendor, it’s a true partnership.
